Taking Gralise for Trigeminal Neuralgia

I take Gralise for Trigeminal Neuralgia, TN2 (1800 mg). It works far better then Gabapentin, which made me feel terrible. I have trouble with most drugs…they don’t work allergic reactions…. 600 mg worked for the first month. My only side effect was terrible heartburn that came and went. Then it just stopped working. At 1800 mg I must take with other drugs….Klonopin and Aimovig. I was also on Cymbalta, but gained 60 pounds, had severe insomnia and terrible nocturnal leg pains. I got off it, but now need something to get that pain under control again.


Tapered up to 1800 mg. on sample pack and my Dr. didn't listen & called in Gabapetin. I tried that off & on for a few years post chemo. (Peripheral neuropathy). I then went cold turkey to about 2-3 '300' mg. pills for a couple of days, felt that swirly headed silly almost tipsy feeling & decided to just stop the drug. It has never helped my PN. And an online msg. board has many posts about Gralise being a big joke. Maybe??? having some pain relief from Cymbalta, but probably only 75% back pain relief. Still have 25% back/shoulder pain. Such is life. Everyone lives w/ pain. But I do have chronic pain from PN. And emotional pain. PTSD from past cancer, etc. ## Hello, Marie! How are you doing? Gralise is Gabapentin, it's just a name brand for it. Learn more Gral...

Hi, I just received this cream from my pain management doctor. I have had 2 LS surgeries for severely sequestered discs, severe radiating pain and peroneal nerve decompression. Continued pain/numbness in my R leg due to radiculopathy. I take 3000mg of Gralise (gababentin)- Yes, you read correctly! I take 5x the amount of Gralise to decrease the nerve pain in my leg. Do you think there is hope with this topical cream? ## Hi Jennifer, The cream you're describing containing baclofen + cyclobenzaprine + gabapentin + ketoprofen + lidocaine, is reportedly prescribed as a topical pain reliever. However medications like this can and often do affect each person differently, whereas it's possible that you may receive more benefits from it than others or vise versa, depending on the severi...
